Summary

While West Germany and Norway had won the first four World Championship in team Nordic combined, the 1991 World Championship was won by Austria, with France second, and the surprising Japanese third. In Albertville, the Japanese jumped to a commanding lead on the normal hill, leading by 29.5, giving them a start margin of 2:27 for the relay, with Austria second, and Germany third, and the dangerous Norwegians a full 6:16 back. In the relay, Norway, which had placed sixth in jumping, would post the best time, moving them up to the silver medal. Japan would place only sixth in the skiing, but it was enough for them to win the gold medal easily, with a 1:26.4 margin over Norway. They were never in danger during the relay. Austria was third in the relay and dropped back to third overall and the bronze medal position. The hometown French team had been fifth on the jumping hill, and was second in the relay, but could not move onto the podium, finishing fourth.
